President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo during his 14th Address to the state on measures taken to stop the spread of Coronavirus gave clearance to move operators to work at full capacity.

“In consultation with the Ministries of Transport and Aviation, and therefore the leadership of transport operators, the government has taken the choice to lift the restrictions within the transport sector, and permit for full capacity in our domestic airplanes, taxis, rotors, and buses. The wearing of masks in vehicles and aircraft, and therefore the maintenance of enhanced hygiene protocols, remain mandatory”, the President said.

However speaking on Asempa FM, Kennedy Agyapong opined that the choice by the president may be a wrong one.

He said: “As on behalf of me, the clearance they need to be given to moving trotro operators to run full capacity, I’m against it and that I think it’s not right and I’m afraid because I just recovered from it.”

“The guy who involves my place for cheques each day never moved a day without his mask but what happened to him? He tested positive for the virus so it should show you that it’s dangerous,” he said.
